Three Days Walking is based on my previous Walk Project work but takes it in a different direction. It is derived from a trek by my wife Gail and I through the near-Gobi Desert of Mongolia in 2007. The series pays homage to the historic stereo views produced by itinerate travel photographers over a century ago. While my views are clearly not stereo, the paired images play with a similar sense of displacement and parallax. On the left, you have your eager explorers, photographer and companion, having traveled from a place in the middle of Canada with a winter and summer climate and a rolling grassland landscape eerily similar to that of their destination in Mongolia. On the right is the social and environmental reality of a place largely unchanged over many centuries. No fences, no land ownership, no roads. A place, though strangely like our own in Canada, that is sparsely populated with nomads and horses.
